A Sky Cinema production that like the previous Sky Cinema Productions were being showed on Sky Cinema Channel and selected Cinemas at the same time. Life Itself feature Olivia Wilde, Oscar Isaac, Antonio Banderas and Annette Bening with a brief appearance from Samual L Jackson. The films starts off weird and tries to split the movie into Chapters like Moonlight but fails with this as it disjoints the film and 1 chapter is 30 minutes long whilst another is like 5 minutes. The Chapters do link up at the end but as you watch the film it is very confusing and has different timelines, you can suddenly be 2 years previous and then back at the current time. However once you have watched the film and pieced all the chapters together it makes a lot more sense and makes it more enjoyable so I think it is a film that improves when you watch a second or third time but not sure you would watch any more than this.
The actual idea I really liked and that the worst story narrator is Life Itself but I do think the film could’ve been better and perhaps get rid of the chapters or just have 3, 1 each about the families and then one final one at the end where the families join.
So I’m only giving this a C+ (Changing rating from out of 5 or 10 to grades like we had I school so will mark it A+ to F-).
If have Sky watch it but I don’t think worth going to the Cinema for.
